The Snapdragon 810, Qualcomm's new standard flagship chip and arguably one of 2015’s hottest commodities, is the Android industry's answer for catching up with Apple on the 64-bit issue, as well as better performance via octa-core processing. This early, though, the Snapdragon 810 seems to be taking heat from gadget manufacturers and critics for all the wrong reasons.

The OnePlus One was one of the phones of 2014, simply because it managed to marry top-of-the-line specs with a sub-USD$300 price point.
